I don't know where this will end up, but I am humbled and surprised that so many of you like my still life. Thank you, thank you for all the wonderful comments; those are more special than the score.

Another deftly handled still life, Mary Ann. You compose and light these so very well. Excellent job.

Congratulations on the blue. It is indeed a lovely still life. However, I also saw things the way Lydia did, and although I initially had you in top spot with a 10, I eventually dropped you down into a top 5 position (8) as I reshuffled my top few.

Hmmm... although I LOVE to see beautiful art recognized (and this is definitely beautiful art)... and you KNOW that I love your work, Mary Ann...

If someone asked me to look at this image and tell what it's of, I'd say, "Three bulbs and a bowl."

The challenge description said to have three subjects present... all equal in visual importance. I see four subjects, so... soo...

So... *cringe* I'm sorry to have to admit that I gave you a 5 during voting... but I give you big congratulations for such a well done shot now. The technicals are wonderful... the composition exquisite and the visual appeal is... a 12. :D

Congratulations on your ribbon!

so well lit... the whites and darks and textures are just so good.

I like the Old World feel here and the tones. A little too much space for me, especially above the grouping - but it would look really funny cropped narrower, too, I think, given the subject. One of my favorites. 8

Love this as still life / fine art. I hope to see this ribbon. You're in my top three picks

There are few masters here that shoot still lifes that you immediately want to put on the wall...
I wish I could do something like that, it's beautiful.
May be even more husk (is that the right word?), it has such a great texture...

Beautifully soft and rich- the (small) bowl is beautifully warm and echoes the white of the garlic, all scale is lost-life is stilled.

Best in show award, congrats, great still life.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful. Everything about it. The pottery, the garlic bulbs, the table and background, lighting, tones, colors, composition. My top pick. in fact I want this print in my kitchen! (I have over 300 garlic bulbs planted in my garden!) 10+++
